Fast heart rate

Dear All, I need advice. I have been having palpitations since February and did several ECG and echocardiogram but everything is normal. Yet when checking for my heart beat on my monitoring device, my heart rate goes up till 129  and on average is on the 110.

At times I do feel my heart beating in my neck and head. And a few times i have had chest pain. I am 29.

Do you think is heart disease?

Thank you for your reply

    Hi rachna,

    sorry to hear about your difficulties, palpitations are really difficult to handle. They make you feel so unwell. I have them due to a myocarditis caused by infection. Yours sounds like they have started for no particular reason. A friend of mine had the same problem and underwent an ablation, it has cured him. He had them despite not having an underlying heart problem. It might be worth seeing a cardiologist who specialising in Arrythmias and ablations. Good luck and good health,

      Hello Glynis, thank you so much for your reply. Hope you are ok now. Mine started once on the way from work, i had major palpitations, shortness of breaths and dizziness, doctors said it was due to stress. A month later even in my day to day activities it is still above 100. Sure will go to another cardiologist, because this freaks me out really sad.

      Thank you, god bless

    Could be something called Supra Ventricular Tachycardia?? It's not heart disease but is unpleasent and causes racing heart rates, and unless it is happening right then and there it can't be picked up on a normal ecg, nor an echocardiogram. Definitely see a cardiologist would be my advice, as they can be caused by underlying heart disease, although it's not likely. I've been diagnosed with many heart conditions including three SVTs, so I know how unpleasant palpitations can be! I hope you get it sorted eventually! x

      I completely understand, in the past I have had a heart beat of 350 per min several times and I often get a racing heart beat and am not able to walk or talk at all until it passes, it's so unpleasant and I know it can feel terrifying!!
